DG – A Velvet Coup

by Nathan Hamm on 1/26/2006 · 1 comment

Tim Russo, the democracy guy, has been posting the manuscript of his book on his “adventures in democracy from Ohio to Armenia and back again, and the cosmic relevance of it all.” He’s up to Armenia’s 1998 coup in his latest installment for those who might be interested in jumping into the story.

Since the Armenian blogosphere is sadly becoming the larger blogosphere’s equivalent of North Korea–a hostile, hermetically-sealed community–it’s nice to have the opportunity to post something related to the country.

By promoting New Eurasia’s project outside of Armenia you are not going to change that situation. You need to promote and support those of us trying to encourage blogging from within Armenia.
